Jungian oriented psychotherapy

Ventura and Santa Barbara

The realm of the unconscious is a source of creativity that can support well-being.  There is a personal healing wisdom and inner strength that can be accessed to help navigate the struggles of life. Attuning one's conscious attitude towards challenges can be transformative.

The most important creative act, which we all do, is participate in the creation of our own life. When we are receptive to the voice of the unconscious, through exploration of both sleep and waking dreams, life's challenges can be used as a guide towards wholeness. 

My offering is to provide guidance for your journey, assist you in hearing your inner voice, confront the difficulties before you, and create the life that calls you.

I am currently enrolled in an analytical psychology training program, based on the works and practice of C.G. Jung. My area of research explores how dreams during critical illness can provide psychological healing.

I work under the supervision of a certified Jungian Analyst.

So come to the pond,

Or the river of your 


or the harbor of your 


And put your lip up to 

The world,

And live

Your life

It is not possible to complete yourself

without sorrow.

Sorrow is a vital ingredient that shapes the heart and enriches it.

So endure sadness the best you can

when its season comes.

That rain that can fall from your eye

brings life to a field,

and on other days when you laugh,

a sun takes birth in a sky you will

someday know.

See how all the elements are inside of 


See how your soul is a sire of light.

Solace and resilience can be found through sharing the challenges of illness.
